Public Events

Our public events draw on the rich resources of Columbia's campus, the Global Centers network, the Institute for Ideas and Imagination, and European cultural and academic institutions. Here, we have created a "third space" of intellectual exploration and inquiry that resists easy categorization. This engagement brings together a diverse audience to address urgent, contemporary global issues through creative, rigorous, and open dialogue. We achieve this through a public speaker series, conferences and workshops, and student and alumni involvement.
